I did my first All Grain this morning. A wonderful Kolsch Kit from Austin HBS. Rather than pitch the grains, I spread them out over some flat rocks in the front yard to dry in the hot Texas sun. Sure enough, in just over 4 hours, I had some customers.



My MLT with the stainless hose worked GREAT! I used a pre-chiller and my wort was down to 80 degrees in about 20 minutes. I pitched a White Labs Kolsch Yeast, and now it's off to finish cleaning up.

Nice. You can call me full of it if you want But if I did that I'd have javalinas in my yard. About 3 weeks back I spotted 6 of the critters behind my house.
Congrats on yer first AG.

Yeah, I know. SWMBO is a big animal lover. I only want to harvest one one a year I tell her. It doesn't work. I guess I'll stick to fishing. Soon I'll be able to wheel the 3 gallon corny down to the bank and after a while, I won't care if I catch anything.

I guess I'm lucky my wife wants me to go shoot a deer so she can cook with it.

The deer in Oakland, CA would actually stand around waiting for us to finish mashing! Due to fire safety, pruning & weed control, there wasn't much for them to eat. The deer in Oregon don't eat spent grains, they prefer ripping apples and leaves off of fruit trees. I compost the grain out by the hop vines.

Some good eat'n on javalinas. My sister in Tucson has them all over the place.
